candidate since ronald reagan in 1994 beating obama among white voters. by 14 points among white women. five points among independents. he won all the groups by more than george w. bush did in 2004. but he lost the election by a wider margin than john kerry. why? because the composition of the electorate changed. as the obama campaign predicted more than a year ago, the white portion dropped from 2008 to 72% in 2012. the president carried nearly eight in ten nonwhite voters including astounding 71% of latinos, 73% of the asian voters and 93% of black voters. remains a real question why the democratic nominee can hold the obama coalition together but the republican party is right to be reexamining the relationship with minorities. finally, lesson four, don't ignore the data. the polls matter and more are right than wrong. though public polling consistently showed the president ahead, the romney campaign sin veerly believed that romney would win. why? they assumed it would be wider and older than it was. the enthusiasm numbers favored them but they didn't have enough voters. many republicans b
of the white house in the showdown is you can't compromise as it is currently constituted. obama made the point over and over again and basically laid it out there $250,000. i want the bush tax rates to disappear. i want to use it as a referendum on that, and quote, his words, break the fever and went in to the negotiations after winning by four points. 332 electoral votes. if he ever had a mandate, the bush tax cuts go away and a baseline and don't be afraid to go over the cliff if you believe in the 250. $250,000, face it, $800 billion in revenue over 2 years and now 450 and cutting it to 370 over 10 years and sending messages to republicans he doesn't fully appreciate still when he has a good hand. what he had coming in to this, the demands $$250,000. up to $400,000. take the debt ceiling out of the table. the republicans look at this, can look at this and say we kind of squeezed him down to the bare minimum, the bare minimum in terms of a debt ceiling. we have the debt ceiling expiring in a month and not going to negotiate over the debt ceiling. he just did. it's out of the deal and we can

of the electorate changed. as the obama campaign predicted more than a year ago, the white portion of the electorate dropped from 74% in 2008 to 72% in 2012. the president carried nearly 8 in 10 non-white voters including an astounding 71% of latinos and 73% of asian voters and a of course, a whopping 93% of black voters. it remains a real question whether the democratic nominee in 2016 will be able to hold the obama coalition together, which also includes young voters, but the republican party is right to be re-examining its relationship with minorities. finally, lesson four, don't ignore the data. poll meater and more are right than wrong. they showed the president ahead. the romney campaign sincerely believed until election day they would win. romney pollsters assumed their electorate would be whiter and older than it turned out to be. they didn't have enough voters. more than any cycle in recent history, many republicans bought into an alternative polling universe where the vast majority of pollers were a conspiracy vaeted by some mastermind determined to suppress voting. in 2016, they will hope
